Car in reverse

Is he awake or lost in a lucid dream?
Drifting in a car beyond his reverie
The car shifts to reverse thrusts at high speed
A frightening journey to abyss.
Too bizarre to be real, he wonders
As he’d already seen this farce happening
Then he wakes just to realize
His runaway car swears to left and right
On the same path of his dreams
The helpless driver in silence
Watching his destiny revealed.
Nothing he can do to alter
The ominous reality or his fantasy
A terrified witness, that’s all he is
Doomed to discern a horrific crash
Before or after his awakening.
